Clean, comfortable with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We got to Rappahanock Sunset Cottage late in the evening after driving through a storm and oh, what a joy it was - furnishings well-appointed and so comfortable. We especially appreciated the well stocked kitchen (pots and pans, etc.). We brought our boat and fished a lot; forgot a new life vest and owner graciously sent it to us. Beautiful dock with crab pots for renter use - and there were lots of blue crabs! Thanks so much!

Beautiful and very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

House was well equipped and was very comfortable. Having our own beachfront and dock was wonderful. The water was easy to access and swimming was good. It was very peaceful and there were no crowds of people. We were 5 senior citizens and we all loved the beautiful quiet scenery. Sunsets were breathtaking. Even caught some crabs with the traps on the dock. Swimming area would also be good for kids as it gradually gets deeper. Several consignment shops in Kilmarnock for those who like to shop. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Pretty house, great views and enjoyed the covered part of the pier. It really prevented us from getting sun burned.

Relaxed and remote

  • 5 of 5

We spent the July 4th week at this great rental home, accompanied by our 20-something daughters. We found it to be very clean, and well-stocked including abundant bath & beach towels. Updated master suite is restful and welcoming after a long day on the river. MBR deck small but adequate for quiet morning coffee for two. The covered dock with picnic table was the highlight; we ate meals out there, and spent long afternoons fishing, reading, relaxing under the roof (Wonder why all the docks aren't covered, as the roof gave us much-needed shade and enabled many more hours outdoors in the heat of the day!) Huge backyard would be ideal for kids to run. We brought our kayaks; were joined by sharks on a calm early morning! Two smaller bedrooms ready for update, but adequate when spending time outdoors. Wish the porch windows opened, especially as we had first two days pouring rain! Appreciated the satellite tv, cards/crib board and other board games on those rainy days. Cons: remote and unlit roads for last 30 minutes of drive in; nearest grocery store 25 minutes drive.

Wonderful place to relax and recharge

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, very nice home, clean, fully stocked, and very responsive owners. The best part was the dock because part is covered, has nice chaise chairs and a picnic table. One can relax in the sun or in the shade - perfect for all, beautiful river, nice little beach, quiet. Great for resting and reading. Crab baskets furnished. Has all one needs, air conditioning or heat and a lovely fireplace, comfortable furniture, the master bedroom is roomy and wonderful large shower. Grocery and great Blue Water fish store about 20 minutes away. We will return.
